A visit to the multipurpose DREAM Center in Beira
On 20 November a delegation of representatives of the cooperation between EU countries visited the multipurpose DREAM Center of the Community of Sant’Egidio in Beira, Mozambique. The representatives, who collaborate in common projects of development aid, decided to visit the DREAM program together as an example of best practice in the partnership between Europe and Africa.
They received a warm welcome and their visit covered every area of the center. This allowed them to esteem the quality of the molecular biology laboratory and its technical equipment and the degree of training of the lab technicians, health workers and the personnel in charge of social support. What caught the attention of the guests was the concern and dedication personnel demonstrated when interacting with the patients, and how priority is given to continuous therapy and assistance, also thanks to thorough research on the patients who miss their appointments to make sure they do not abandon the treatment.
